Last weekend, the Volcom WITP – Tour stopped over at the Mr. Wilson Skatehall in Kassel, Germany. Despite the fierce temperatures in the skatepark, a good amount of skaters from all over Germany and Austria showed up and fought the heat. In all divisions the level was super high and some never been done tricks were thrown down the obstacles of the Mr. Wilson Skatehall.
Spectators could witness young Tyler Edtmayer blasting massive bs airs out of the enormous vert quarter, the local boy Robin Wulf bombarding the London Gap with Varial Heelflips, Fs Flips and other tricks, or Octavio Trindade from Erfurt flying over the table into the down rail with almost every possible trick.
Top 5 of each division are qualified for the European WITP Champs on the 27 of September in Sevilla, will Octavio win again as in 2012?
After the official runs Robin Wulf dogged around the park, happy as a dog with two tails, and sprinkled some crazy tricks at almost every obstacle. In the end, he made the impossible possible and cleared the pizza oven gap while customised pizzas were served by the local crew. One of the most iconic skaters of the day was Alex Schultz who convinced the judges with his steadiness and creativity he unfolded in Kassel.
The contest ended with The Cannibal Girls, conquering the stage with an epic sound.
At the end of the day, there is nothing left to say but:
You should pay a visit to the guys from Mr. Wilson Skatehall in Kassel, shred the park and give them maximum respect, since they hand shaped Germanys most epic DIY spot.

KASSEL WILD IN THE PARKS CREW 2014
Yearning to go someplace we'd never been before, we made a last minute call last Friday morning and and headed down to the intriguing Basque Country for some surfing and pinchos. The Sopela Pro Junior contest was on and we felt like supporting our local team surfer Leticia Canales at her home beach. Some would argue we were in Spain, others in the Basque Country.
A crowded but fun beach!
Leticia stirring up some water in the small waves at the semi-finals.
Twin sister Loiola serves as a mental coach and is according to Leti the best person to get her focused and pumped up before a heat
The waves weren't treating our female competitors too good during the final, leaving our some what disappointed Leti in 2nd place. We were proud of her still and after her frustration settled with help of positive friends and family we got some good smiles on the pedestal and an eager guide for Saturday touristing.
Second place after Guadeloupe's Kim Veteau
Sopela has one of the most beautiful beaches on the South-west coast
Tour guide Leticia showing us the view to Punta Galea big wave site from the 160m long Vizcaya Bridge (at 45m over high-tide level) over the river floating out from Bilbao. The bridge was built in the 19th century and is a must-see if you're in the area.
Twin fun in n out of the water
Our personal favorites; Spanish omelette, green peppers, more green peppers and proper Iberico ham.
Every Tuesday until the premiere of "Veeco: A Volcom Filmmaking Documentary" on Aug 26th, take a journey through the Volcom film library as we post a classic Veeco production unearthed from the Volcom vaults. Reserve your seat for the online digital premiere of "Veeco" on Aug. 26th: http://vol.cm/veecofilm
BS! is an out of the ordinary, if not extraordinary surf film that documents the serious ripping of Dusty Payne, Mitch Coleborn, Alex Gray, Ozzie Wright, Nate Tyler, and Andrew Doheny, while revealing their individual characters through thoughtful interviews that quickly slip into honest humor. On top of such humor, the film builds into striking notes of provokingly tweaked sarcasm that is in refreshing contrast to current surf film genre trends.
